  1. 80% of France gets their electricity from nuclear reactors. It doesnt harm them in any way and shows no sign of degradation on the country or the people. They also sell tons of this clean electricity to its neighbors. Im pretty sure my home here in Germany gets nuclear sourced electricity. Also when your accusing something of being bad the burden of proof is on you not me to show that. Its certainly not bad in Europe. The only reason why, in America, nuclear isnt huge is for two reasons. 1) We dont have carbon emissions laws nearly as severe as Europe does so coal is dirt cheap for us to burn for power. Cheap is usually the best in a capitalist society like ours. For example electricity gained by means of burning coal or oil/gas in Germany is subject to a 30% tax. This includes private citizens. Which is why wood heating is so popular here. Or if your like my home we use steam heated flooring, since its just water getting boiled no tax increase. And the warm floors feel great. 2) Investors find it hard to back loans for these supermassive installations because it takes so much to build them, which is why the government is backing all of the loans now in this new bill to spur more people willing to lay money down to get them built.
  2. If nuclear power is so bad how can France pull it off?
  3. Eh it was a stupid comment but its clear he didnt mean it as an official stance more so something to share with friends. People joke amongst themselves all of the time.
  4. Well everyone knows since hes head of state you cant just arrest him. The catholic cult annoys me but its whatever. Though its annoying the world is powerless against them and that they are allowed to simply forgive themselves for anything they do wrong and move on like nothing happened.
  5. The offshore exploration/drilling isnt really a big deal. I know its easier to throw a knee jerk reaction at the word "drilling" and to say fuck it and throw the table over and stamp your feet but you need to understand the situation better. One the proposal opens up hardly any new areas for study/inspection and ultimately drilling. What this is mostly is actually trying to see if we can efficiently cultivate the resources we already allow ourselves to drill at , since were not currently even trying in most of them. Secondly the actual observations and inspections will take multiple years to complete before we even try to get them out of the ground. What a lot of people here dont know, is that the reason why America has seemingly stopped nearly all of the drilling in the states, and why we havent used the Strategic Oil Reserve is for the military and nothing else. Not to sound rude, but quite frankly no one really cares about the very vocal minority of environmentalists who hate the idea of drilling out the oil. The reason why, again, we dont get it all is because the military might need it. For what you ask? For pretty much if/when America is ever faced with the situation where we are engaged a massive real war and we need those resources to keep ourselves in the fight if we cant trade for it anymore. Its inevitable we would start the process of inspecting the land weve allowed ourselves to drill (which we will soon) and it was even further inevitable that we would build more nuclear power plants. A lot of people dont realize this new bill were going to work up which involves the nuclear plants and the drilling is also going to work in a cap and trade system that previously failed. Its also going to open up research into alternative fuels/energy. Overall its the right thing to do.
  6. wow sorry I meant to say I am not all for gun rights being taken away big typo there
  7. Its just a different form of expression my parents never cared much. And they are pretty right wing minded people they just have more important shit to care about, according to them, like drugs and drinking and driving to care about hearing shit fuck damn.
  8. The people who want civil war have no idea how hard they will get fucked if they think aiming at the white house and taking shots is the right thing to do.
  9. Hutaree Militia Group Raided by FBI + Homeland Security involved Read more here http://news.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474978135840 If you look more into it this group also believe Obama is the anti-christ. They are basically republican extremists. They got raided its believed for selling pipe bombs and threatening to "invade" muslim areas near them. Ah well this is just another blow against gun rights, which I am not for.
  10. Sarah Palin confirmed for a god-tier troll.
  11. So healthcare passed. But I havent seen anyone here talk about it. So I took the liberty of making you a thread for you to discuss it. Me personally Im glad insurance companies are getting regulated somewhat now. Ive hated insurance companies for bullshit they do since before it was cool to hate them for dropping sick people to dodge bills.
  12. Well after doing much deliberating heres what I just got. DBZ seasons 1-6, Baccano, Black Lagoon, and Blue Gender, and (this shocks me) I got Gunslinger girl 2 on bluray - I had to since the bluray was cheaper than regular dvd. What kind of backwards ass pricing is that? Ah well I win in the end. You know when I obtained Samurai Champloo and Claymore I also got those on bluray since the bluray was cheaper than regular DVD. I dunno I hope more of this happens. Now I need to make a list of loot that I want next month since I just burned my income tax budget to spend on media. I guess I should finish up the DBZ series and get GT but after that I dont know, I need to buy anime for my wife only, she might like that. But I have no idea about the female based genres. Im thinking Ruruoni Kenshin would be something my wife could enjoy, plus its long as fuck too so thats plenty to enjoy together. Sledge what dubs do you and Lady enjoy watching together. And if anyone else is married/living together with your significant other what anime do you watch with them.
  13. Americas tax system is pretty lenient compared to other western nations that arent 3rd world shit holes. Whatever message and claim to legitimacy this guy had was thrown out the window when he burned his home down (making his family homeless), getting rid of all other assets, and killing innocent people because he was upset the IRS ass raped him for taxes when they found out the fake religion he had set up was only for evading said taxes. He got mad for being busted as a fraud and thats all there is to it.
  14. I just want to watch the movie for the Daft Punk soundtrack.
  15. Dont play MMOs man me and my wife used to play the fuck out of wow and ran our own successful raiding guild and shit. Needless to say it raped our personal lives since we ran a late night weekDAYS (fuck the weekends and the kids it brings out) raid guild. The reason why we raided during the week was because me and her both at our employers volunteered to work every weekend for the right to always have mon-wed off (we worked four 10 hour shifts thur-sun). Once we played wow a lot we never went out anymore or did anything other than play that damn game together. We even forsaked watching TV or movies just to play more. MMOs will do that to you.
